Kreiner, C. F. and Zimmer, J., 2009. Travelling wave solutions for the discrete sine-Gordon equation with nonlinear pair interaction. Nonlinear Analysis: Theory Methods & Applications, 70 (9), pp. 3146-3158.
The focus of study is the nonlinear discrete sine-Gordon equation, where the nonlinearity refers to a nonlinear interaction of neighbouring atoms. The existence of travelling heteroclinic, homoclinic and periodic waves is shown. The asymptotic states are chosen such that the action functional is finite. The proofs employ variational methods, in particular a suitable concentration-compactness lemma combined with direct minimisation and mountain pass arguments.
